“The main topics for our April 7-9 meeting in Santa Fe are industrial partnerships with large HPC centers and how they’re working, with perspectives from the U.S., France and the UK. We’ll also take another hard look at what’s happening with processors, coprocessors and accelerators and at potential disruptive technologies, as well as zeroing in on the HPC storage market and trends and the CORAL procurement that involves Oak Ridge, Argonne and Livermore.”
Fred Streitz from Lawrence Livermore National Lab presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “The HPC Innovation Center bridges American industry’s growing need for advanced solution to complex challenges in research and development with LLNL’s forefront supercomputing and disruptive scientific capabilities.”
“The INCITE and PRACE programs give access to increasing resources allowing these technologies to be applied to industrial scale systems. From past and ongoing research examples performed at CERFACS, this presentation highlights the scientific breakthroughs allowed by HPC on exascale machines for reacting flows for gas turbines and explosions in buildings.”
The European PRACE initiative has allocated 44 awards totaling millions of hours of supercomputing time in their 8th Regular Call for Proposals.
Over at the XSEDE blog, Scott Gibson writes that the organization is collaborating with industrial partners to both advance open science and improve companies’ bottom lines. The “Industry Challenge” is a new XSEDE program designed to bring the scientific and industrial communities together in multidisciplinary collaborative teams and connect them with world-class advanced digital services. […]
Over at the Connect Blog, Adriana Hamacher writes that the attractions of big data and necessity for increased computing power are pulling HPC out of its academic cloisters and into business. These new developments can open up the world of supercomputers to expanding organisations that want to quickly take on more work and exceed capacity […]
In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Dr. James Osborne from HPC Wales writes that distance learning techniques may help train the next generation of computational scientists. Simulation and modelling are now widely seen as the third pillar of science, alongside theory and experimentation. The ability to harness today’s high performance computers is […]
